SEO don’ts

Always good to catch up with some Web Developer friends and to listen to their latest work & insights.

Today still many companies miss the point of simple SEO don’ts. How about to review some of the basics.

Some SEO don’ts are:

  • Don’t stuff keywords in your footer page with colored or hidden text. It’s old school.
  • Don’t stuff keywords in your meta & image alt tags. It’s old school.
  • Don’t obsess over Google RankPage and don’t check your rankings every day.
  • Don’t post your most valuable content on secure HTTPS pages. Spiders don’t index those.
  • Don’t black-hat tactics and play illegal ways to game the system to your advantage.
  • Don’t make your site uncrawlable. Avoid developing an all Flash, all Graphic or all AJAX site.
  • Don’t wait too long in implementing SEO. When building or revamping a site SEO start on day 1.
  • Don’t create multi pages with same content.

Of course the list could go on but let me know your SEO don’ts and write a comment.

Please avoid these pitfalls and keep things simple.
